The astrology of Queen Elizabeth II: Duty and honor above all

After watching The Crown on Netflix I became inspired to learn more about the Windsors and I began watching documentaries on YouTube about this fascinating family. At some point I hope to present a comprehensive series about the dramatic personality differences as explained by astrology, but now the Queen has transitioned to the next plane at a point where the entire global political ecosystem hangs in a fragile balance. So before we move on to discuss King Charles and Liz Truss and what might come next in Britain I’d like to bid an astrological farewell to Elizabeth. (This is not meant to be a comprehensive astrological profile but will cover the major influences in this brief format.)

Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor was not meant to be Queen. Her Uncle David (Edward VIII) was first in line to the throne after the death of his father King George V but famously abdicated to be with the woman he loved, leaving his younger brother to take the throne as George VI, Elizabeth’s father. George VI suffered from health problems (lung and heart) and died at age 56, leaving Elizabeth to become ruler of the British Commonwealth encompassing seven nations. She was 25. But as we will see, her astrological chart shows a powerful destiny of commitment to a greater cause.

Elizabeth was born with the Sun in Taurus, and the Sun makes no aspects to any other planets (other than an out of sign aspect to Chiron in Aries which is out of the scope of what I will cover here today). We call this a “singleton” Sun and it tends to show someone who tends to stand alone. Her Moon is in the regal […]

The astrology of Clarence Thomas

When I have a session with a new client, I like the astrology to speak for itself. I never Google the client, or look at their website when they send me a link. Rather than try to fit the astrology into my idea of who the person is, I would rather see what the astrology says since my view may be flawed. That process is more difficult when doing a profile for a public person. We see their actions, and we have an opinion about them. And while I try to remain neutral in these profiles my bias will sometimes leak into the astrological information. This post is about Clarence Thomas as a human being and is not meant to be an endorsement of his political influence.

Clarence Thomas has a fascinating biography. He was born into a poor Gullah community (descendants of slaves who have lived relatively intact in the sea communities of Georgia and South Carolina since post-slavery times) and went on to attend Yale law school and sit on the highest court of the land.

(Thanks as always to Astro.com for hunting down accurate birth information.) Thomas was born with the Sun in Cancer, the sign of deep feelings and love of family. Cancerians tend to have a strong sense of history and connection to community. Thomas’s Sun conjoins Mercury, planet of the mind, which always suggests an individual of high intelligence; however, when the planet of the mind is in the sign of feelings, there is an emotionality in thought and communication that is not always helpful. The Sun/Mercury pairing includes the addition of Venus (relating) – a Cancerian stellium of deep sentimentality and like the crab it symbolizes, a rough outer shell which hides a well of emotion and vulnerability.
